Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral brings together leaders like Bolsonaro, Macron and Joe Biden
Monarch’s body will be buried this Monday (19) at Westminster Abbey
Bolsonaro annoyed by questions about using travel for political campaigns
Queen Elizabeth II Farewell Ceremony, who will be buried this Monday (19), brought several world leaders to the UK. Names like Joe Biden, Emmanuel Macron and Jair Bolsonaro (PL) came to honor the king.
One of the first to arrive at Westminster Abbey to pay homage to the queen was America’s president. Biden was accompanied by his wife, First Lady Jill Biden.
Shortly thereafter, the new British prime minister, Liz Struss, was also present on the scene. She was appointed on the 6th, just two days before the king’s death, in Elizabeth II’s last public appearance.
Former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was also in attendance, along with his wife Carrie.
French President Emmanuel Macron, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Italian President Sergio Mattarella and Spain’s King Felipe VI attended the tribute to the Queen.
Jair Bolsonaro is here
President Jair Bolsonaro arrived at around 6:45 a.m. (GMT) at Westminster Abbey, accompanied by his wife, First Lady Michelle Bolsonaro.
As he left the official residence of the Brazilian ambassador in London, Bolsonaro was angered by questions about the possible use of travel for campaigning. “Do you think I came here for politics?” he asked.
